ah yes, the "aclove", "recess" surrounding the main door roundels is deeper than the ones on the opposite side.
Now, the question is how deep? ???

TARDIS roundel


This original TARDIS roundel was used in the production of the long running BBC television series Doctor Who.

The roundels are a key feature of The Doctor's TARDIS having been used from the very beginning of the series in 1963. This style of roundel was used from the Tom Baker serial The Invisible Enemy (1977) throughout the remainder of the classic series until the set was destroyed after filming The Greatest Show in the Galaxy (1989), it was also utilised in various episodes as the Master's TARDIS which was the same interior set painted black.

The roundel is constructed from fiberglass and features a number of mounting holes where it was attached to the set, remnants of black paint are also visible from when the set was painted for used as the Master's TARDIS interior, the piece measures 22" in diameter and remains in excellent screen used condition.

An iconic image synonymous with the series and an incredibly rare example of an original prop used throughout the tenure of four incarnations of The Doctor.

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

The roundel measures 22 inches? I'm guessing that is counting the mounting flange. If so, and the actual roundel openings were 19 inches (from Season 14/15 until 26), that would mean the flange is 1.5 inches all round. (1.5" all round = 3 inches total; 22" - 3" = 19")

More invaluable info and images, Nate, and thank you once again!

If anyone needs measurements, pictures etc for a template let me know I have one,  Its from the BBC molds, but I believe it is from the panoptican convention in the early 90's and not from the show.
I want notes, lists and answers by the time I finish this here Juicy-a-Box! WARNING: I am Thirst-ay! And it is Fruit Punch! And it is Delicious!"

It doesn't matter, Karst. If it came from the BBC mould then it's as accurate as you can get, no matter where that roundel was used. And thank you for offering to post those measurements!

Sorry for the late posting HVAC went out during one of the hottest weeks here and also a new roof on the 20 years old townhouse, but as promised here is my roundel with a tape measure.  If I need to retake any due to angle issues just say the word and If anyone has an idea on how I can get better measurements for the grooves let me know, I do have a set of digital calipers but as far as depths I don't know.   Tony was kind enough to send a print out of his measurements to compare to, I can't get it size to the right percentage on any of the printers for a true 1:1 so again, any thoughts?    

Let me know what other pictures you want and I will take them so we can get this detail accurate.

What you need for this is a Contour Gauge Duplicator - basically a row of narrow pins in a plastic retainer. You push it against the surface, which slides the pins, and you get something you can lie down and see the profile.

BRILLIANT!!!

I can get one of those at our local Home Depot or Lowes,   or i'll order one from Amazon. Great advice Crispin.

Well Karsten, you should now be able to tell me how close I am with this:

(Edit - apparently, I can't spell the word 'tell'!)

I believe I can Tony, I'll dig out the calipers and use those for the finer details, I'll take a picture of each measurement as I am holding the caliper.

Tony,

just took 3 measurements to start off with, I will get the rest posted for you at the latest next weekend, but based on these 3 and considering human error (me) on measuring, I would say you are spot on thus far.
